Force on the hunt for finals
The Western Force has its focus firmly on the Melbourne Rebels ahead of their Round 8 clash at AAMI Park in Melbourne this Friday at 5:45pm (AWST) as they fight for a place in the finals.
Having recently been named in the upcoming Wallabies training camp, exciting flanker Tim Anstee is grateful for the opportunity.
“It’s something you dream of as a kid to be in the mix for the Wallabies squad. To have myself and another two Force players in there is really exciting for Western Australian rugby,” he said.
“I’m excited about it, but at the moment I’m focused on the Force, finishing our season strongly and playing finals footy.
“Training has been strong, it’s been quite fierce, which I think is great because it shows that it means something to us all.”
Flyhalf Jack McGregor cannot wait for this Friday’s battle with the Rebels.
“We had a very close game with them last time out and a couple of close games last year as well,” McGregor explained.
“We’ve looked at the next three games and if we win three out of three then we give ourselves a really great opportunity to make finals, so that’s the focus.
“It’s a big game for us and our club this week, so we’re going to put everything into it.”
